...Last Peek Before The Release

Happy Sunday! Where in the world did October go? I blinked once, and it was gone! Now here we are in November, and that means another release is coming from The Greeting Farm. This last week, the entire design team has been sharing little peeks of the new sets and images that are coming your way TONIGHT following the Virtual Stamp Night/Release Party HERE from 8-10 p.m. EST. But before you go partying and shopping, I have one more sneak peek for you!

This is "Max" flippin' cute is he?!? When I first received these new Twinkle Tots I didn't think that this cutie was going to be a favorite, but I have fallen in love with all of these adorable little ones! Each one has it's own little personality, and each one is a joy to color. I combined this handsome young man with some of my new patterned paper from Scrap Within Reach, and drew the colors from the papers to use as my palette...Night of Navy, More Mustard, and Sahara Sand. The main image was embossed on Watercolor Paper, then colored and shaded with an Aquapainter and Ink Pads. My sentiment panel was created by stamping a sentiment from the "Fly Away" stamp set, then punching it out with the Word Window Punch. I punched the large arrow out using the My Way Punch, then distressed the edges of each piece with a Sponge Dauber. A couple of brads were added to the panel to complete the masculine creation.
That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you back here in a few with a new Verve creation! Until then...
